The G.A.N.G. Music Demo Derby is a longstanding tradition at the GDC, and has been a cornerstone event for new and emerging composers. Attendees can submit 60 seconds of their best work for a detailed critique and feedback from a team of leading audio directors and professionals, and participate in an active discussion with fellow panelists and audience members. The Derby facilitates game audio practitioners of all levels, and is suited for producers, composers, audio directors, and anyone interested in music for games and interactive entertainment.
